Technical info:
Devastator has a traditional sidecut that goes all the way out to the ends with a steady medium-length sidecut radius. There is rocker throughout. It has a fibreglass sandwich. The skis have a short setback, which gives little width difference between the back and front ski. The construction is heavy, and this is in fact the heaviest ski in the test.

On snow:
The 4FRNT models with long float tips and pronounced taper, like Renegade and Hoji, are modern classics, while the attempts at creating "normal" skis with a long sidecut have not been received that well. The Devastator belongs to the latter category and it feels a little outdated. It´s heavy, very solid and not the quickest in the turns. They are made for big turns at high speed. The tail didn´t really bring out the playfulness, but this might be expected when the skis are 194 cm long and weigh over 2.5 kilos. The Devastator in the longest length is suitable for those who want to have the skis just like that.
